following the success of the max headroom show
19 December 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

this show was max headroom's 3rd show what i mean by this is that it was max headrooms own show's but this time it was made by an American TV station cinemax in 1987. This show was a talk show with no music and had 6 shows and max had interviews with William shatner,grace Jones Ron Reagen, the show had a jingle to say what show numeber it was and how many shows are left the jingle went like this its the first guest on the show and 5 more to go these show were funny but not as good as max headroom other two shows which he had out in 1985/86

in 1985 max headroom had a music show with 1 guest on most of his shows and the show was more music based then anything else this show had six show.this show was made in the uk by carlton television on channel 4

in 1986 max came back with a new show and max sings this is my new show and has an audience this show was also made in the uk and max interviewed film stars the first show had michael caine as a guest it was a very funny interview

i hope everything max did comes out on DVD these 3 shows. the max headroom uk movie,the uk movie extended version,the max headroom TV series,the coke ads,the radio rental ads,the David lettermen,terry wogan interview and anything else max did i also would like to see any parody's of max to the best one's i remember is the one's done y bobby davro he looked just like him as for the other back to the future etc are OK but not as good as bobby
